Cor Flammae @ The Queer Arts Festival
Cor Flammae [kor 'flam.maj] flaming heart
Ignite your evening with the ravishing, soaring voices of Cor Flammae, Canada's only professional choir of queer singers who illuminate the rich and furtive queer spaces typically left out of classical choral concerts. Composed from the ranks of Vancouver's top-flight choral ensembles, the choir seeks to reveal the hidden queer heritage within the rich history of music, and change the ways we listen to the works of well-known historical figures to celebrated contemporary composers.
Cor Flammae co-founders Missy Clarkson, Madeline Hannan-Leith, and Amelia Pitt-Brooke have brought together a large swath of local queer choral talent, including 2014 Guest Conductors Peggy Hua (Conductor of Vancouver Orchestra Club Symphony Orchestra & Choir) and Hussein Janmohamed (Choral Director, Composer & Community Music Designer). Hua and Janmohamed's talents have been involved in a wide range of choral acts, including having worked together as colleagues in conducting the UBC Women's Choir. Featuring works by Stephen Smith, Michael Park, Shane Raman, Catherine Laub.
Come early, share a drink among friends, and take in QAF's visual arts exhibitions. Bar opens at 6:00 pm.
This event is scent-reduced, and fully wheelchair accessible. For more information on how to support a scent-reduced event, please visit PeggyMunson.com.
